Artist's Description

Some of Sacramento California’s architecture is completely unique to me. This is a prime example. I can’t begin to guess if this is unique, odd, or representative of a style never before seen in the downtown of my town. But it has been less than a mile from my home for…however long it’s been less than a mile from my home. I didn’t see it go up (or come down from space with the Jetson’s).

A historical amount of editing went into this shot to get the perspective correct. Nothing I shot had the incredibly narrow building looking like anything inhabitable: too skinny, too tilted, fat at the base and tiny at the top, etc. Then I thought about the cars and it all came together in a few seconds. The cars didn’t need my comparison shots because they always look like the same cars. Once I got the cars right and matched them to the top of the structure, the entire thing just…. well, looked as weird as it does now. Weird but accurately weird.

PS There’s a sub-story that goes along with this shot. It included things like “I AM standing in front of it!” and “It can’t be more than three rooms wide” and “OK, it still looks weird from the top of this adjacent parking garage but the rest of the downtown looks less weirder”. But I’ll save that story for another time. Like never. Ever. Trust me.
